    “Am I Gay?” Today, every family in America faces this question one way or another. Even the best families. Maybe you have a child, or sibling, or close friend who feels attracted to people of the same sex. Maybe a niece or nephew or grandchild wonders about their sexuality. Maybe they are asking YOU about these questions. The book “Why I Don’t Call Myself Gay” challenges the idea that feelings of same sex attraction necessarily mean a person is “gay.” The author, Daniel Mattson, tells his story of experiencing same sex attraction, acting on it, and ultimately, allowing Jesus to...

    Briony Whitehouse was a 19-year-old intern in 2003 when she boarded an elevator in the Russell Senate Office Building with a Republican senator who, she said, groped her until the doors reopened. She never reported the incident to her bosses for fear of jeopardizing her career. But she recently tweeted about her experience on Twitter as part of the #MeToo campaign, a social-media phenomenon that has aired thousands of complaints about sexual harassment. Some of the accounts have called out by name Hollywood moguls, media stars, even a former U.S. president. Other women such as Whitehouse have stopped short of...

    Brazilian activists and celebrities have condemned a court ruling that approves a "cure" for gay people. Waldemar de Carvalho, a federal judge in the capital Brasilia, backed a psychologist who had her licence revoked for offering so-called "conversion therapy". Rozangela Justino is an evangelical Christian who has called homosexuality "a disease". Critics have called the ruling regressive and medically unsound. Brazil's Federal Council of Psychology banned psychologists from offering treatments that claim to change people's sexuality in 1999. It said in a statement that the decision "opens the dangerous possibility of the use of sexual reversion therapies" and promised to...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's experience in the 2016 Republican presidential primary was apparently enough to make him swear off ever running for political office again. While speaking Thursday at Texas A&M University, where he's spending two weeks teaching a course about governors, Bush admitted that he thinks 2016 was his best and only shot at making his presidential dreams a reality. "I unraveled everything I was doing to prepare for this you don't do that lightly," Bush said. "I just think this was my chance." But Bush swears he's doing okay in spite of his loss....

    Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Tryptophan and methionine are essential amino acids -- the diet must provide them because cells cannot make them. Normally, the lack of an essential amino acid in the diet can lead to serious diseases and even death. Foods rich in tryptophan and methionine include cheese, lamb, beef, pork, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs, nuts and soybeans.

    Jeb Bush said on Saturday that people who have a problem voting for him because of his last name "need to get therapy." The former Florida governor has struggled to gain traction in the Republican presidential race in part because many voters are leery of electing three presidents from the same family. "The Bush thing, people are just going to have to get over it, alright?" a defiant Bush said at a townhall gathering at the McKelvie Intermediate School gym here ahead of tonight's GOP debate. -snip- "I got no problems with this, and people that do, they either need...

    Finally Obama is cracking down on ISIS. No more Mr. Nice Appeaser. You plot to behead Americans. You go right to the therapist's office. The FBI is now referring some potential terror suspects for psychological counseling as part of a new touchy-feely strategy to defeat homegrown Islamic State supporters. Rather than lock up everyone in the U.S. suspected of potential terrorist activity, the FBI will direct up to 10% of the thousands of people under investigation to the shrinks couch, where they can rehash the indignities of their childhoods that led them to seek retribution by opening fire on crowds...
